Spirited jewelry designs in Gold and Silver by Jessica Felix
JEWELRY DESIGNS by JESSICA FELIX
Building this new site is an ongoing process and it will be continually changing. I will be adding a LOT more jewelry. So please visit often.
“ART AND ALL THAT JAZZ” is a studio space in Healdsburg, Ca that incorporates my two passions – art and jazz.
My Studio is open by appointment only Call 707 332-8433 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a time to come by. I always have good jazz playing.
I create what I call “spirited art,” specializing in images from indigenous cultures around the world. “I like to create things that make jewelry fun,” she says. Much of my work is in silver, and incorporates powerful shamanic images such as Alaskan masks, African musical instruments, Northwest Indian spirit images along with pieces inspired by Japanese, Mayan and Aztec cultures. Many of my designs are in the form of sculptural sterling silver whistles, with many varied tones. You can find a silver wolf whistle with a plaintive tone, a three-inch whistle of a raven on the back of a frog and many others. “It took me about three years to figure out how to do it. I don’t think anyone else makes whistles like this!
I also design gold jewelry using unusual stones I have collected over the years. Like much of my work, my gold jewelry is another extension of my passion to create individual improvised art. I love to just sit down and see what comes out while I’m carving the wax. All my pieces are first carved in wax and then cast using the ancient technique of lost wax.”
I love to interpret unusual images into jewelry. I have created several other designs using wine motifs, African musical instruments, musical motif’s and more. I hope you take the time to look around my site and see the many different pieces I have created over the years. If you have any questions feel free to email me.
